Wildlife Wednesday

There used to be a nice area north of Denver International Airport where burrowing owls could be easily photographed, however, construction and man’s intrusion into nature has forced the owls elsewhere. Pawnee Grasslands is the most popular area to find them these days, but I’ve heard that there are some locations not far from Ft….

Moose Monday

Happy Moose Monday. I’m looking forward to a fun summer of moose photography. Here’s a nice shot of a bull, taken in 2016.  Never before published. I have some cool stuff in the works and once all my Moose are lined up, I’ll fill everyone in. Life is good here in Colorado.

Sheep Sunday

I’m playing with the idea of not posting photos directly to Facebook and instead putting them on my blog and then posting the link on Facebook. A technical matter, designed to keep the management of my photos more simple. I’ve realized that I’m leaving images hanging out on Facebook far too long and that is…

The Local Duck Pond

I’ve been a bit dormant on the photography front for the past several weeks. Getting everything ready for summer and that type of stuff. I made a trip out to my local Duck Pond the other day with my friend Tim. Nice afternoon sunlight, lots of interesting birds. Here’s a sample.

May The Moose Be With You

Winter’s last gasps are upon us.  My back is improving to the point where I can contemplate actually doing things that don’t involve a television remote control. Life is renewing itself. I’ve been reading the photography websites (nothing better to do while laid up) and the subject of Adobe Creative Cloud keeps popping up. Seems…

And That Was The Mistake

Moose Monday! It has become a tradition to post a moose photograph each Monday. No problem. By my calculation have about a half million moose photos. I’m still nursing a severely strained back and just when I think I’ve made some progress, it reminds me that it’s not over with.  I’m on phase three of…

Kentucky Road Trip

The thing I’m liking about retirement is not having to work if I don’t want to work. I’ve been laying up here at home the past few weeks, recovering from a back injury. The downtime has allowed my poor old pulled back muscles to return to functionality. I’ll have a few more days of rest…

Rejection and Redemption

Nobody likes to feel rejected. If you are in to stock photography, you will be rejected and more than once. It is a fact of life and I don’t normally dwell on the images that are rejected by any particular stock agency. Sometimes, you’ll find redemption. As in the case of today’s photograph of a…

Monte Vista – After Action Report

Every photography trip is different. This year’s Monte Vista trip was no exception. The story starts over a week before my friend Tim and I leave town.  I normally schedule this trip for the week following the annual Monte Vista Sandhill Crane Festival. Mother Nature had a different idea. The “Bomb Cyclone.” Spring snow storms…
